DRAFT

Draft sports management (DRAFT) is a Newcastle based sports management business that was founded in 2015

For over 25 years, I have worked and volunteered within the sporting landscape. During this time, I have seen sports clubs struggle to meet their goals simply because they do not have enough ‘hands on deck’ to reach their full potential. With the knowledge I have gained, I have developed processes and systems to assist clubs across a variety of sports. We now have the ability to tailor personalised assistance to your club through consultation and hands on work.
